I think ita€™s really cool to be on a jury. Take the O.J. jurya€”the people on that jury got book deals, and they got on Nightline, and some of them even got to meet Greta Van Susteren! They were always being written about in the newspapers: a€œJuror No. 1, a thirty-six-year-old Caucasian male with a mastera€™s degree who works for a high-tech corporation.a€ Throw in a line about how a€œhe likes to hunt and fish, a€ and youa€™ve got The Dating Game.

And know that in the process youa€™re handing this Kornheiser guy the dough for these columns twice. I got into the stock market late. I was deep in my forties and I still had all my money in the bank, earning 2 percent, like it was low-fat milk. My friends laughed at me. Even the people at the bank laughed at mea€”they had all their money in the market. So I gave my money to a financial adviser, who promised me he would get me a greater return than the bank. A baboon could do that, Tony. Yes, but would a baboon give me steak knives? a€”from Ia€™m Back for More Cash From the Hardcover edition.... wash on a line when the only thing she knows about manual labor is that a€œ manuala€ sounds like the name of her gardener. ... consumption: a€œOnly run your dishwasher when it is fully loaded and air-dry your dishes instead of using the dry cycle.
